    Hello! I'm new to this forum. I was getting annoyed with all of the "storage almost full" settings so I turned to a website that said to turn off icloud photo library, and so I did; thinking it would do nothing. But then, when I went back into my Photos app only pictures saved from safari showed up. I went into iCloud and all my pictures were still there, but I don't know how to recover it without a computer. Please, help ? I couldn't find a duplicate to this problem.

    I have an iPad Air 2.

    Turn iCloud Photo Library back on, and your photos should again synchronize with your iPad. It may take a while though.

    Unless you have a computer that you can download all your photos to, you're going to be stuck; your best bet is to pay for additional storage for a couple months until you can get a working computer to download and back up your photos.

    (This situation is additional proof that no iPad is a true computer replacement yet.)
